My wife has suggested I try a new subscription service that specializes in great looking graphic t-shirts. She mentioned it before Christmas. Again, around my birthday and then again around Father’s Day. I was slow to take the hint. Like many of the Modern Men in our 40s, my t-shirt collection was a mishmash of shirts from over the past several (some 20+) years. Yankee … Continue reading Keith Signs Up For Wohven Subscription Service – A Review
After yesterday’s story with my favorite apps to keep myself awake while rocking the baby back to sleep in the middle of the night, I received a few messages from our readers… they all ask… “But how do YOU fall back asleep after that!?” That’s a great question. To me, I didn’t put much thought into that aspect while I was writing the piece. The … Continue reading Follow Up Story – The Baby Is Finally Asleep – What About You!?
As Billy Crystal used to say on Saturday Night Live, back in the day, “It’s better to look good than to feel good.” How does the Modern Man find time to look good beyond a shower and a disposable razor shave?

(Aside from the necessary trip to Deviant Donuts – totally worth it.) The plan continues to be to change up the style of how I’ve been eating. Cut back on carbs, no sweets, smaller portions. Instead of a tuna grinder for lunch, … Continue reading Trying To Eat “Right” … At A Sports Bar
On my diet – I cheated on my diet! Calm down! Sheesh! It’s been 3 weeks since the annual trip to the doctor I told you all about in my last post. The dreaded “you need to lose weight” conversation. I’ve been so good. I’ve pretty much cut all sweets and carbs out of my diet. And it has not been easy. Let’s go back … Continue reading I Cheated And It Felt Great!
When we had our first kid, it was time to start taking care of myself a little better. That meant that it was time to get an annual physical. Being in my 40s made it even more important. I hated doctors. They would take my blood pressure, temperature and bang my knee with a rubber hammer. Then, just as it would be seemingly over, I’d … Continue reading Getting (a) Physical – The Battle of the Bulge Begins
